    LOL It gets super hard to balance sports and their time commitments, that is one of the reasons we dropped Flyball and I don't have any kids! Plus we recently decided to say thank you and no to the horse we have been riding/we were going to buy, the dog stuff takes too much time and money already!

    Dock Dogs is *EXPENSIVE*. When I think of how much each wave costs compared to each run and how many you do in a day, ugh... lol Tracking is cheap, and not too time consuming except we have to do it in the early, early morning here and frankly I want to sleep in. However, we're probably going for our APr titles (O & P, no T) because of the hard-to-track resources we have here so I may just start sleeping in anyways. :p

    You should come out here! I know Gary would be thrilled and we'll be happy to help you get started!

    I couldn't agree more about the lack of confidence I have in myself and her. :x Hopefully I can learn to let go a bit as time goes on and it will help us out a lot! Thank you for the advice, I appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    Hahaha, thank you, herding is such a mystery to me still. I would love videos of your training some day. I'm super intrigued!

    You guys look great, though I don't know much about agility either. It looks like so much fun, I would love to do it one day.

    Thank you, you're going to be hooked in no time, it's a lot of fun!!


    Hahah yeah, thanks, Denis has flair for extra long videos and usually a bunch of silly commentary. I'm surprised he stayed quiet this time. :p

    Good to know about the price! I'll probably just try it out for fun this summer since I finally found somewhere for them to jump. If either of them show any super dog skills then maybe I will consider it for next year.

    I hate getting up early too but it's a little easier for me during the spring and summer, so hopefully I can get my butt out of bed. Riley especially loves tracking so I'd like to get back into it.

    It was really hard for Psyche and I too. What I really found that helped with Psyche was to do a really simple course (like, one change of direction) and just RAM. Her skill level seems plenty high enough to handle a course like that (;)) and that way you could just focus on RUNNING! :)
